What kind of drunk do you think that you’d be (not that you’d have the opportunity to find out)?
This question is sort of brought up because of a Danisnotonfire video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=todAQtZSejg) (at least I assume so) about
people’s different reactions to alcohol- clumsiness, passing out, being excessively flirty or depressed, and so on. I personally don’t find any of the options to be very appealing, possibly because I’m a control freak and think my inhibitions are there for very good reasons, and because of this I kind of wonder if getting drunk would just make me paranoid about how the alcohol was going to affect me. I dunno, is that a thing that alcohol can do? Make you paranoid?
Which would win in a fight: a shark or a Dracula?
Probably a shark. I mean, even on land, the shark can still bite Dracula’s head off or fall on him or something, and what’s Dracula gonna do? I don’t think he can bite through shark skin. And that’s even with the locational advantage going to Dracula. In the water, the poor ole vampire wouldn’t stand a chance.
Would you really want to be famous on YouTube?
It might be cool, though I’m not sure how being a famous YouTuber would work with my actual career goal of teaching. Somehow the two don’t seem very compatible.
Would you want to be famous-famous (more so than YouTube)?
No, not really. I don’t especially like the idea of being stalked by paparazzi and criticized by the media for every decision I make.
If you had unlimited money, but you could only live in one place for the rest of your life, where would you live?
Living in one place doesn’t prevent me from travelling to other places right? Because it’d be really dumb to have the money to travel and not be able to. Anyway, if that were the case, I’d probably just live here or somewhere close where all the people I like are :)
Would you rather live in one place for the rest of your life or move around a
I think I’d rather just stay in one place. I mean, moving once or twice would probably be fine, but I wouldn’t want to be moving around all the time- I’d never be able to get close to the people living around me and things would be way more complicated. Plus if I had kids then I
wouldn’t want to make them keep switching to new schools- that’s no fun. Obviously there are all kinds of places that I want to visit, but I still want to have a constant home to return to.
How long do you think my family will keep the Christmas decorations up?
Who’s your favorite character on Firefly?
I should’ve known someone was going to ask me this question :/ But it’s not fair! I like all the people! I’d say my top three are Simon, River, and Kaley, but I’m only halfway through at this point. I don’t know enough about them to pick an ultimate favorite just yet.
Are you even enjoying Firefly, or are you just watching it because we won’t shut up?
I am actually enjoying it :) I mean, you complain about Once upon a Time just about every time I see you, AB, but that hasn’t made me any more inclined to try watching it again. Do you really think I’d keep watching, regardless of your complaints, if I didn’t like the show?
Who’s your 2nd favorite president?
Of course. The one favorite I actually have a ready answer to and you want my next choice. Why do you do this to me?! That would probably be more dramatic if this were a vlog… Anyway, I guess… after Lincoln… I’d have to go with… Teddy Roosevelt, maybe? After all, he got Teddy Bears named after him, and he was pretty awesome, with his rough riding and his speaking softly and carrying big sticks and all.
If you could have anyone- living or dead- be your private tutor, who would you
Private tutor for what? Most of my education is already behind me, you know… I guess I’d pick someone who’s fluent in a lot of languages? Cause then I could learn all kinds of languages, and that would be cool :D
Do you think it will snow later today?
I REALLY hope so!!! Of course, my sister’s school let out an hour early, and any time the school system decides to release early that usually means that nothing will happen, but I really REALLY want some snow!
If you could have some kind of magical object, what would you have?
Do you think you look more like Audrey Hepburn, Helena Bonham Carter, or some other celebrity?
I have no idea. I mostly think I look like myself, so I’m not really the right person to ask.
Why didn’t Anna Beth answer my question last week?
Because she secretly hates you :) Or else she didn’t think to check for questions in the comments. But probably the former.
What was the last story you wrote (or tried to write) about? (If you can’t remember the last time you wrote a story, try harder. I know you wrote fan fiction at some point)
Well, I tried to rewrite our web series awhile ago. And I meant to work on that before school started back… but that hasn’t really worked out so far… stupid YouTube…
What do you think makes a good blog entry (not necessarily just for our own blog)?
Something that is interesting and engaging? And also grammatically correct. Spelling and syntax errors are irritating and off-putting.
What was the most recent daydream you had?
Well, recently I’ve been imagining what it’d be like to meet and befriend cool vloggers at VidCon. I’ve had other ones, too, but my daydreams tend to be almost as hard to explain as my real dreams.
If you could change the color of one aspect of the world (for example: make the sky green, or the ocean purple, or chocolate red) what would you change?
I’d make the road a prettier color. Because gray is really boring. Maybe I’d make it dark purple or something? That’d be kind of cool :)
If you could pick any ten books to be the curriculum for High School English, which would you pick? (I think I answered this once, but I don’t remember if anyone else did)
Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain
The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer
A Separate Peace, John Knowles
To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne
Great Expectations or A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens (I haven’t actually read either, but I like Dickens, so I feel he should be represented…)
Brave New World, Aldous Huxley (probably this should be reserved for seniors, or possibly even college students, and high schoolers should read Orwell’s 1984 instead. I just don’t really like 1984…)
(note the absence of Steinbeck :)
And if you’re thinking that I just looked through lists of common high school reading material and picked books that I liked, you would be correct :)
What’s your favorite word that isn’t a word?
Do you dog-ear pages in books?
No! I like to keep my books looking perfect and nice. Which is why I feel really bad looking back at the books I annotated in high school. The exception is textbooks. Since I keep all of mine anyway, and am too lazy to take notes on what I read, I do a lot of highlighting and occasional margin scribbling. But even those I don’t dog-ear. That’s what bookmarks are for!
So that’s all the questions for today! Jill wins, so give her some questions via comments or Facebook or something. I’m going to get back to wasting my last week of sleeping in and watching too much YouTube. Have a good week!
